During the year, as well as running fund raising events, Cancer Research UK, Todmorden Committee, make up various “themed” hampers including beauty, children’s, cookery and men’s to name but a few.
The hampers are then placed on display at different outlets ie beauty salons, shops, pubs, offices and so on around the district.
Members of the public are then invited to buy numbered squares at £1 each.
Once all 100 squares have been sold, the winning number is chosen.
For example, Danny Gilfillan and John Connolly, recent winners of two hampers which were placed at the Robin Hood pub at Cragg Vale.
The committee is looking for more places to take part, and would like to hear from you.
If you can help by hosting one of these hampers in your shop, office or anywhere the public visits, and have somewhere safe to keep the money, please contact Alwyn Sutcliffe of the committee on 01706 812019.
